All members are required to attend registration and have their voices checked each fall for placement in the choir. The choir is open to children in grades 3-8 who demonstrate the necessary singing skills. Boys must have unchanged voices. January Registration is held for new members who wish to join mid-year as well as current members who are requested to re-audition by the choir directors. Rehearsals are held each Tuesday throughout the school year from 5:00 to 6:15 p.m. in the Peru Parkside Choral Room. Most singers spend several years in this choir developing basic singing skills and musicianship.
